Another Five Things List

A few days ago, I asked you to list five things you wish you could do better. Today, let’s list five things you’re good at. Now’s the time to be egotistical!

  1. “Computers” (you know, as in “He’s good with computers”)
  2. Remembering obscure hip-hop facts
  3. Making excuses
  4. Picking up the little things in a conversation while totally missing the main points
  5. Taking off my socks without using my hands
